The sweet and salty flavors in this Rocky Road Pretzel Bark are a hot favorite at our house. Flat pretzels are topped with toasted almonds, velvety melted chocolate and gooey marshmallows. It's a no-bake winning combination.
Rocky Road Pretzel Bark
This recipe for a rocky road pretzel bark combo was a result of an over abundance of pretzel crisps that I had on hand thanks to my friends at The Snack Factory, as well as my love of rocky road in any form. Some time ago, I collaborated with The Snack Factory, maker of Pretzel Crisps, and developed three recipes using their products. All 3 recipes were chosen by the Snack Factory to be featured in their limited edition "Got An App For That" cookbook. Soon after, eighteen cases of pretzel crisps in every flavor arrived at my front door. I've had lots of fun using them in different dishes throughout the year.
No-Bake Sweet and Salty Delight
Since sweet and salty is a family favorite, rocky road seemed like a natural progression. One thing I love about this rocky road pretzel bark is it can be made up to a week in advance and kept in an airtight container at room temperature. It makes for easy munching during warm weather or a fun sweet and salty treat for special occasions, gifting at the Holidays or any time of year. Other sweet and salty goodies to try are my Peanutty Choco Ice Cream Sammies and irresistible Ooey Gooey Rocky Road Cookies from Fifteen Spatulas and Mini Rocky Road Donuts from Big Bear's Wife.

I'm partial to the 6.5 quart Artisan with the lift bowl. I make large batch recipes though, and it's purely personal preference. You're right so many to choose from, and they perform so well. I've also have a 4 quart and it works very well for small-medium sized recipes. Happy shopping!
I want a new Kitchen Aide to replace the one I have from my mother and I am 75 years old! This one must be 50 years old and works well. I didn't realize there were so many kinds to choose from now. I do not bake large quantities and I don't know what I should buy..the lift up the bowl, the tilt the head back, or what. Can you advise me, please?
YW, of course, you can use your favorite flavor of chocolate. ~ Melissa
Made these and they are good. Next time I will use mik chocolate though...

I don't need it for this recipe but I love your complete instructions, the pictures that show me what each step of the process should look like and the finally out come. Thanks for all the work you do and sharing it with us.
